What are you most proud of? That this turned out nicer than I had anticipated. I am very glad that I have stuck with my craft.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Paint the petals as you add them. The petals on the wires,of course,have to be completely dried before adding to the base petals of the flower. Add one wired petal at a time.

what flower petal cutter did you use and what brand?

i used a petal cutter with petals that can be pressed into the gum paste, plus round cutters for the wired large petals. I painted the variations on dark red petals after the initial rose was made from the petal press, and then after the wired petals were dried, I painted them and put everything together. For the dark verigated color, I used a dark red food gel color.

I have been recovering from cancer and spent most of last year fighting it. It is my intention to re-focus what I was intending to build on before that happened. I hope that you all will come back as I would love to pass on to others what I have learned.
